Honolulu Restaurants Cocktails The Veranda at The Kahala

Dining choices at The Kahala Hotel & Resort

The Veranda at The Kahala is the newest 'in' spot for the trendy Honolulu crowd as well as hotel guests looking for the place to see and be seen.

Just off the beautiful Lobby, The Veranda offers indoor and outdoor seating, overlooking the beach, pool and Dolphin lagoon.

Its alfresco space now features wood flooring and contemporary furniture.

Afternoon tea is a delight with delicate finger sandwiches and pastries and teas from The Harney Collection.

The Veranda is the perfect venue for cocktails and light jazz in the evening and offers a selection of wines by the glass from top vintners from the Old and the New World.

A menu of Mediterranean inspired small plates complements the innovative cocktail list.

"Awesome Stay"

Just returned from our seventh stay...and it was one of if not the best stay we have had...If you are considering The Kahala, get on their email list. It is definitely worth it. As always, the food was uniformly awesome from the breakfasts, to the Veranda to the fish tacos on the beach. The hotel also delivered a nice bottle of champagne in honor of our anniversary...

~ Tripadvisor.com user | 2013.06.03

The Veranda is Honolulu’s living room of the stars!

Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 pm to 11 pm enjoy the contemporary jazz piano stylings of David Swanson in The Veranda. A new, globally-inspired menu is winning friends and fans who love the ahi poke musubi, short rib tempura, and sushi & shashimi platter and hand mixed cocktails with an artisan kick. Settle back into comfy Tommy Bahama furnishings or enjoy the conversation pits on the lanai overlooking the Dolphin Lagoon.
